At Sugar Creek Animal Hospital, we have state of the art laboratory equipment made by the IDEXX diagnostic company. This equipment gives us the ability to get rapid, accurate results on your pets' tests.
We have the capabilities to run complex blood chemistries, as well as quick checks to test a diabetic pet's blood sugar level. We can determine whether of not your pet is anemic, has a low-grade or acute infection, and monitor your pet's organ functions while on medications.
With just a small blood sample, we check your dogs for Heartworm and Lyme disease, as well as two other tick diseases called Anaplasma and Ehrlichia. We test your cats for Feline Leukemia and the Feline Immunodeficiancy Virus (also called feline AIDS).
We have the ability to run diagnostic tests on urine and stool samples as well.
Many times we will have important results from our in-house lab within 24 hours, often during the same business day. We are proud of both our technology and our staff who keep our lab running smoothly!
